Landa Kongreso 2017

By Myrtis Smith

There is one reason I attended the USA Esperanto Congress: my airline ticket was nonrefundable.

Four months earlier, I had finished the Duolingo course. I was working my way through the Lernu course, actively participating in the Duolingo Esperanto Facebook group and trying to read Gerda Malaperis. In my excitement of being a blossoming Esperantist I impulsively registered for the Congress and booked a flight.

As I made the 30-minute trek to the airport, I apprehensively thought, what have I gotten myself into?

Local Esperanto groups are forming now.

Local Esperanto groups are forming now.

It is exciting to see new local groups forming and people contacting one another. It is happening several ways, with the Amikumu app, with Meetup, various online forums and social media, and with the local groups listing in Esperanto-USA.

We are looking for new connections, specifically in Delaware, Rhode Island, Vermont, South Dakota, and Mississippi. If you are in one of these states and are willing to be a contact person, let me know and we’ll set you up with your email address on our web page. Note that the email addresses are cyphered so that automatic bots (web crawlers) won’t recognize it as an email, but they are mouse-clickable for humans.

Local Esperanto Groups

filipo's picture

It is so encouraging to get emails and messages from beginners and post beginners who recognize they aren’t fluent in Esperanto but still have the courage to be the contact for starting a new local group. We have recently updated quite a few listings and have added new states to the list: Arizona, Alabama, and West Virginia.

We now have 98 local groups or local contact points in the United States for our Esperanto communities. We are growing both in individual membership and in number of local groups.

States with no listings:
Rhode Island
South Dakota

We are not ignoring the territories!! Territories with no listings:
American Samoa
Northern Mariana Islands
U.S. Virgin Islands

Apud la akceptotablo en la hotela vestiblo staris, je pluraj minutoj post la sesa vespere, kvar homoj, kiuj interparolis. Ili
turnis la kapon, kiam haltis ekstere polica aŭtomobilo kaj rapide envenis tra la vitra pordego altkreska viro, sekvate de alia
portanta enmane fotilon.

Renkonte al ili iris de la grupo grizharulo en maristoblua kompleto, etendis la manon kaj prezentis sin kiel la hotelan
direktoron. Sen lasi al la alvenintoj tempon por paroli, li daŭrigis, "Kia terura afero! La ĉambro troviĝas en la tria etaĝo.

New local groups forming now

filipo's picture

In the forums in and, and in Facebook, such as
Esperanto USA - Usono there are more and more posts from learners looking for somebody to speak Esperanto with in their community. Recently the interest has been in Michigan, Southern California, Alabama, Alaska, and Texas, but many are looking.

In these forums and blog comments, learners are finding one another and creating conversation circles, groups, and clubs.

If you are looking for a local group, go the the facebook pages for Duolingo Esperanto Learners, or the Esperanto USA - Usono and look at the messages. Leave a note and lets get connected!
We are growing!
